The Community Solutions Team is forming now. Our mission is to devise strategies for building a new, more equitable low-carbon economy for Austin. Inspired by the work of Naomi Klein and the Leap Manifesto, we are currently focused on building strong relationships with communities and organizations across the city, with a particular emphasis on those who are most adversely impacted by climate change and the economic and racial injustices contributing to that impact. We anticipate that by first developing those relationships, we can then together identify the best strategies for a given community (e.g., affordable energy-efficient housing; flood mitigation; community solar).
